J. Cole is set to embark on a charitable cause. The Roc-Nation rapper plans to allow single mums with more than two kids live in his childhood home, rent-free.

The plan is to allow a single mum and her kids stay in the house for two years without paying any rent. After two years, another family will move in.

"My goal is to have that be a haven for families" said the rapper on The Combat Jack Show interview released on Tuesday, January 27, 2015.

"So every two years, a new family will come in. They'll live rent-free. The idea is that it's a single mother with multiple kids, and she's coming from a place where all her kids [are] sharing a room. She gets to come here rent-free. I want her kids to feel how I felt when we got to the house" spoke J. Cole on the idea.

J. Cole's childhood home located at 2014 Forest Hills Drive, Pennsylvania is the centerpiece of his third album.

The title of the album is called 2014 Forest Hills Drive. The album captures his experiences as a boy, teenager and man living in the house.
